First Canning in Our New Home

This actually took place a week or so ago. We picked enough black raspberries for me to can up some berry fillings. These will be a great reminder of summer in the cold of winter. I can almost smell the cobbler or pie baking...

There are a few red raspberries thrown in. They aren't nearly as abundant on our property. What a pretty sight!

So I got to work. It's basically a syrup base with the berries added in late enough in the cooking to stay whole. Then they cook a bit more, of course, in the canning process.

Lovely, lovely rich color.

And we got 7 pints to put away. We also have had two, very full, very delicious pies during the black raspberry season.
